  1. Me playing my dream guitar - a 2007 Studio Custom that I ordered for myself. 8 lbs weight limit, tummy bevel, Ebony neck, premium quilt, black transparent. Now recently fitted with an excellent Gravelin Charlotte bridge pu... Can you imagine? (Neck pu is a Seymour Duncan Jazz!) The fantastic crew at the Hamer workshop did a remarcable job with this one! (My most heartfelt thanks forever!)
  2. 2017 Shishkov/Gravelin HFC Pickup Special!

    Yep! It did the trick... with flying colors!! (Earlier longing for a LP to complete my stable. That idea is now gone completely.) The Charlotte bridge is simply fantastic in my Hamer Studio Custom. My son helped me install it today. We are both floored. Clear and distinct, both clean and with full on "metally" gain, a broad ranging perfect pup for my needs. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Josh!!
  3. 2017 Shishkov/Gravelin HFC Pickup Special!

    After it getting stuck in the swedish customs for 5 days (!)... yesterday I finally got the Charlotte Bridge pickup from Josh! You are a great person in all respects and again I thank you!! I will get assistance from my technically gifted son this Saturday to install it in my custom ordered Studio Custom - see my avatar! (This project is very exciting!) An audio report is forthcoming!

  5. 2017 Shishkov/Gravelin HFC Pickup Special!

    I got a message from Josh telling me "my" Charlotte bridge PU is ready, wound up and just about to be shipped to me (in Sweden!). I feel very happy about this!! My dear 10 year old Black transparent Studio Custom from 2007 will get the upgrade that she deserves! Thanks again, Josh!!

    Black transparent quilt and ebony... Just like I like it!! Sweet!!! (Congrats!)
  11. It is my custom ordered Black trans Studio Custom, from the spring of 2007. <--- The one in my avatar on the left.... I paid just about $ 3000, including shipping and taxes (to Sweden). As it is just about perfect and priceless etc it is the best buy I have ever made. I am truly one lucky guy, forever thankful to the Hamer workshop staff.
  12. Favorite "majestic" guitar solos

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U58JZ05qlGk Poor Boy, by Chicken Shack. From 1972.... A fantastic solo played by UK prog blues rock hero Stan Webb... the solo starts just before the 2 minute mark. Enjoy!

    which song on the album?
  14. Great and very beautiful guitar ...and also, like, historical! (The first and the last Hamer was a Standard...) I'm happy for you! (Everyone of us that have ordered a custom made Hamer knows the feeling of holding it for the first time! My Studio Custom - see the avatar on the left - feels like heaven!) .
  15. I'm lost for words... I feel sad for all you Hamer people. I love you all. . Still I am a very lucky owner of two remarkable and fantastic instruments.
